What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents the most famous method for transferring website files to a hosting account. Using an FTP client app that is pre-installed on your desktop or laptop computer, you can establish a connection to your web hosting server and copy all of the web files that you want with several mouse clicks. You can do this via a simple-to-use interface and it is as simple as dragging & dropping the files in question. The advantage of using FTP is the fact that you’re able to set up different accounts, each one with a different level of access to your web space, so if you wish to provide somebody with access, for example – a web designer, they will be able to connect only to a specific folder and will not be able to access the rest of your content or any other info, such as private details. Three things are obligatory in order to be able to set up an FTP connection – a hostname, which is normally an IP or a domain name, a user name and a password.
